"Every Cent You Make"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Every cent you make
Uncle Sam will take
Every bond you save
Every stock that gains
They'll be watching you

Federal,Fica,State
Nothing left in your pay
Every contribution you make
Every deduction you take
They'll be watching you

I pay the DOT
I pay electronically
How my poor heart aches
With every dollar they take

Every payment you make
You can't afford a mistake
Penalties and interest at stake
The though just makes me shake
They'll be watching you

Since I filed,everythings been lost without a trace
I dream at night ,I can see my accounts face
I feel so old and I long for an IRA
I keep crying exempt me, exempt me,please...

I pay the DOT
I pay electronically
How my poor heart aches
With every dollar they take

Every cent you make
Uncle Sam will take
Every bond you save
Every stock that gains
They'll be watching you

This is really really good, but the pacing's a bit wonky in places, for example, in the line "Every contribution you make", too many syllables. High quality stuff though 455

Not sure if I voted this 455 or 555 but wouldn't "Taxing" vs " Watching" be better. Good parody. Must have hit back insteaad of submit earlier.

Your both right. Should have used "Donation" instead of contribution. "Taxing" would work well but I wanted to keep it closer to the original song.
